Friday Foto is almost over for the week but I'm getting mine in! We're still on beach time so my blogging is a little slack!
This sweet little nest is in a tree right outside our back door. The mommy cardinal sits on the nest until I come out to check on my garden but she's never far away. This is the best picture I could get without disturbing her too much. There are three eggs in the nest. Counting the days until we have babies!
edited to add: Okay, now I'm thoroughly confused. Mr Starfish and I see the female cardinal sitting in the nest, the male cardinal lingering around and the blue eggs. A quick Google search shows that cardinal eggs are white with brown speckles. What gives? Any birders out there?
